COURIER NEWS MONDAY, JULT 13, 195S Hearing on Hike In Postal Rates Brews Dispute Move to Recess Nearly Drowns Out Postmaster General WASHINGTON IJ). — An nngiv f row broke out today over an un- . f successful effort to recess hearings j of the ouse Fostoffice Commit too !} before Postmaster General Sum- ji merfield could present his case for proposed postal rate increases. ' For several minutes, the Cabinet official and committee members all talked at once, yelling to be heard above the uproar. Rep. Murray (Tenn). senior Democrat on the committee, declared he was "mortified" at such procedure and called the re*?ss move—by Rep. Hagen (R-Minni and Rep. Gross (R-Iowal—"The rankest kind of discourtesy to a Cabinet member." Rep. Catherine St. George (RNY) termed the incident a "disgraceful exhibition." After 20 minutes of confusion, Committee Chairman Rees (R- Kas) restored order and Summer- LEGIOX HEAD — Charles Johnson, pictured above, has been rlrcteci commander of Rof?crs- Lynch Post of the American Legion here, ai Luxon\. A 33-year -old World War II veteran, Mr. Johnson served four, and one! half years with the Army, with ! active duty in the Aleutian Is| lands for two and one-half years.

He has asked for one-cent Jn- | creases in first class and, air mail ! rates, and other boosts for other j types of mailing. ] Rees, aware from the outset that a recess move would be marie, convened the committee and introduced Summerfield with a pointed suggestion to the committee that "he should not be interrupted." As Summerfield started his testimony, Hagen, second ranking Republican on the committee, shouted, "I move we recess and go into executive (closed) session." "Nobody is recognized," Rees replied. But Hagen shot back:: "This Is a motion of the high PS t parliamentary order. It is always in order." Rep. Gross (R-Iowa) seconded Hagen's motion and called for a vote on it. Mrs. St. George insisted that Summerfield proceed. Bees urged Hagen to withhold his motion. Hagen charged he was getting a "rush act here." Gross protested that what he and Hagen called the unexpected and abrupt scheduling of the hearing— announced only last Friday—was a discourtesy to committee members. Summerfield, standing before n. rostrum with his prepared slatc- the opportunity to speak so the merit, interjected that Hagcn's pur- public might know our story." He J. Baker, sergeanL-al-arms.

TAXES (Continued from Page 1) to the bill in the Senate, but Chairman MlHlkin (R-Colo) and Sen- George (D-Ga) said they hope the Senate Finance Committee will approve the House bill without changes. The House considered the proposal under a procedure which barred any amendments. The Senate committee probably will begin brief hearings tomorrow. George said he favors passing the bill without any amendments. If that doesn't happen and it looks as though the Senate may reduce the tax. Sen. McCIellan (D-Ark) said he may offer some ideas of his own. Among these, he said, might be amendments to raise the personal income tax exemption from $600 to $700 and to allow "reasonable reductions" for day care expenses of working mothers with children. 'If this goes through as a straight extension of the excess profits tax, however, I don't plan LO offer any amendments," he said.

Armed Egyptian troops at once took up posts around all government buildings in the town, near Britain's main Suez Canal zone base, but the headquarters of Egypt's Army said they were only TRUCE (Continued from Page 1) Tuesday. The only development revealed at the conference hut was a charge by North Korean Gen. Nam II the senior Red delegate, that Allied planes bombed and strafed a Communist war prisoner assembly camp at Sunan last Friday, killing 5 Allied prisoners and wounding 15. Reporters outside could gee the IT. N. and Red delegates reading statements, but there was no indication of progress on the armi- siice agreement.- But Communist correspondents at Panmunjom and the official Red Peiping Communist radio, two usually good indicators of official opinion, indicated the Red delegates are far from satisfied with U. N. assurances that South Korea vftll obey a truce. Peiping said the Robertson— Rhee talks were "no help to the realization of an early armistice," and caled a joint statement by Robertson and Rhee "obscure." "routine patrols" and would "avoid any friction with the British Army." There were no immediate reports of .any violence, through crowds of angry Egyptians gathered at the British roadblocks. The British charged te missing soldier had been abducted and that they believed at least one Egyptian official had been involved. The Egyptians denied the charge. President Mohamed N a g u i b summoned his Cabinet into emergency session in Cairo. Reports were current that a state of em-, ergency had been proclaimed in' the capital and in Ismailia, but the Army headquarters in Cairo denied this.
